self-funded emperor, obama, assumed a new duty, gala vaunting around the country on our dime organizing and inciting labor riots rather than solving the fiscal cliff problem." we're going to put that up somewhere. another says, "congress should take a break and go home. every time they are in washington, we, the taxpayers, get screwed." tom says, "sounds like boehner is about to give president obama the store. good-bye, america. not quite." that's all for us. thanks for being with us. good night from new york. ♪ [bleep] >> you heard the lady in there. >> i ain't nobody. >> [inaudible] >> get out of my face.

attack and why. chris stevens a three others died in the attack. obama administration said it was a spontaneous event linked to a video. catherine herridge is live for us on capitol hill. there's been this back and forth now. even as much as a moment ago about when secretary of state hillary clinton will testify. what do you know? >> good to be with you. we've got a situation where two congressional committees are saying the secretary of state will testify on capitol hill today but a short time ago at a briefing there was a suggestion there could be a slide on the date because of a arb not being complete. >> the arb is continuing to do its work. to my knowledge it's not yet concluded its work. it decided to keep deliberations confidential until it's finished. our expectation is that after the arb reports to the secretary, then she will have consultations with congress. >> one of the key issues in this review is whether the state department has culpability for the deaths of four americans in benghazi. as fox reports based on the cable there was an emergency meeting in benghazi a mont

guns. david axelrod from the obama side of things fired back saying he is an ego maniacal act. so we got both firing off. republicans psyched at thinking if they do go over the edge, that they can get over the edge of the specter of grover norquist. the shadow of that and that there will be a clean slately 2013. >> well, depends on what you mean by clean slate. i don't think republicans will ever move away from lower taxes, reduced spending. in fact, there's another poll out today that talks about people really supporting the idea of making cuts. not just raising taxes but making cuts to reduce spending. so i think the public wants cuts. the public wants to reduce out-of-control spending. republicans have said they will put tax money on the table. so there's a lot more agreement out there that people are being given credit for. probably have said we'll do tax revenue, as long as we have tax cuts. getting away from grover norquist, he's one man. the taxes i don't think we'll ever see republican party move away from. >> half the americans trust the president more in handling of nego

, true, that's a very serious accusation to say that the obama administration in the form of the department of homeland security would have shielded an incumbent democrat running for re-election against a well-funded republican challenger, that they would have seemedded him from this embarrassment in the weeks before the election would be a very serious charge, very serious, indeed. megyn: they come out and say that is categorically false. a homeland security spokesman says it is categorically false that we delayed the arrest of this guy, luis abraham sanchez zavaletta until after the election. so we have two diametrically opposed stories. one is on the record, one is off. where does that leave us? >> i don't want to end up in kelly's court today, but i think the term is -- there is at least circumstantial evidence in this case that says that the timing at least is tremendously favorable for the senator, for senator menendez. the timing of this couldn't have been better. so certainly the timing benefited him greatly. whether that was, whether there was malfeasance involved, i don

(laughter) because i know some republicans who had their eyelids surgically removed. (laughter) (cheers and applause) now obama won't budge off his calls for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue over the coming decade, mostly from increasing tax rates and taxes on upper-bracket earners. folks, that's just punishing our nation's job creators. america's billionaires are the engine that drives our economy through smart investments! and occasionally through dumb ones. (laughter) today house speaker john boehner struck back with his plan to cut spending by demanding obama come up with boehner's plan to cut spending.
